Cape Kidnappers

I’ve been in the Hawkes Bay area about 3 or 4 times since I live in New Zealand. – And I’ve never made it to Cape Kidnappers yet. :( At first I didn’t know that you could only walk to the cape at low tide. Then low tide was always at the wrong time of […]

Castlepoint Lighthouse

We went to Castlepoint last night and I spent the evening and early morning taking pictures :) Too bad though, that they switch off the light of the lighthouse at 7am!

(Saved in New Zealand, Travel )

A few people asked me lately which airline (and route) I would choose to go from Europe to New Zealand. Well, to be honest I don’t know… :) But I can try to outline my experiences for the airlines/routes I’ve flown so far – which are only Lufthansa, Air New Zealand and Qantas.
